Mr. Seyuba said the media fraternity in Northwestern province has the responsibility to reflect real situations prevailing and ensure government is held accountable by not repeating mistakes made in the past.
He cited the later delivery of farming inputs, which was experienced last year and charged the media to provide timely advice to government.
“The media should reflect on things that occurred by doing investigations before the situation repeats itself,” he advised.
ZANIS reports that the Permanent Secretary was speaking today when he addressed a meeting with civil servants and urged them to interpret government programmes to the people.
He further urged the media to provide a link between the government and communities by interpreting policies which would promote reactions from citizens on the governance of the country.
He also advised the District Commissioner, Victor Kayekesi to create a good relationship with the media as the media can set the tone for development.
Mr. Seyuba has since urged both public and private media to utilize his vast experience which he earned before joining government by allowing him facilitating a bridge for writing developmental stories.

The Permanent Secretary who was en-route to Western Province to attend the Kuomboka ceremony later paid a courtesy call on Senior Chief Kasempa.
Meanwhile Senior Chief Kasempa has called on the permanent Secretary to prioritize development in the district which he described as moving at a snail’s pace since the establishment of the district.
The senior chief wondered why a vast district such as Kasempa has remained under development when it was among the first to be established.
He called on the permanent secretary to make a schedule of visits to all chiefdoms in the district and provide a platform for civil servants and communities to reveal challenges being faced.
“since you came to north-western you have not visited my chiefdom and therefore since you are just en-route make sure you make schedule to visit all chiefdoms and listen to our complaints”, he said
